The Mary Marantz Show

Nov 23, 2021

Have you found it difficult to engage with others because staying true to your convictions feels like it comes at too high of a cost? 

If you DREAD talking to close ones because of unmanageable political divides, you’re certainly not alone this year.

Using Scripture as her foundation, today’s guest on the Mary Marantz Show, Ashley Abercrombie, is speaking on how to resolve the conflicts you’ve been avoiding - even when it feels impossible. 

In her new book, Love is the Resistance, Ashley challenges us to dig into our deeply-rooted opinions and reevaluate if we are glorifying Christ through our actions. And she’s here to share all the insights that went into this guidebook to life on hard discussions.

In today’s conversation, Mary and Ashley are chatting: 

  • How to be an example of patience and disagreeing with dignity
  • About the scripture ‘You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies’ and their interpretations
  • The tangible language swaps to love - even the hard people - well
  • About how we lead with love when there isn’t a relationship previously established (ahem, social media comments!)
  • The different ‘buckets of concern’ that help keep your heart soft for causes you care about, without feeling helpless from the ‘bigness’ of the need


If you’re ready to reconnect with the humans around you again - without the dread and without simply ‘giving in’ - you’re in the right place today.
